Own, study, collect & enjoy

Coin collecting in the United States is once again on the rise. There exists numerous resources to help you identify coins as well as judge their value and rarity.  The Handbook of United States Coins (Blue Book) and the Guide Book of United State Coins (Red Book) are excellent sources of detailed information. They include coin images, values, dates, varieties and mintage totals. Both are available through Amazon www.amazon.com.
Or check your local library.

The Certified Coin Dealer Newsletter also known as the 'BLUE LIST' is a highly followed guide for Certified coins. Published weekly it lists the coin values dealers are reporting. Their website is: www.cdnpublications.com

Another great source of information is the United States Mint. Their website: www.usmint.gov is loaded with information on upcoming issues.
